    Alternate history, 7th gen: Clash of the HD dreadnaughts

    in Gaming Discussion 5 days ago

    Nintendo would have been last, unless they scored some kind of major software coup. But a HD Nintendo 7G would also have had poor online, and Xbox Live was a big selling point of the 360 in its early years. I suppose there's a chance that, with Sony's head so far up their ass about the PS3 and its pricing, that Nintendo could have squeaked into second place briefly behind 360. ...

That's something I see more and more on evangelical sites on the discussion of transgender children. They claim children are coming out as transgender because it's cool and trendy to do so. And nobody can convince those people otherwise.  ...

Had they went with disks, they likely would have partnered with Sony and there wouldn't have been a PS1 (has been my understanding).

    Alternate history: N64 goes with CDs instead of cartridges

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 August 2019

    I'd like to add another factor in support of a CD N64 beating the PS1: Dragon Quest VII. Had Nintendo gone with CDs, Enix would not have jumped ship. Dragon Quest VII came out so late in the life of the PS1 in part because of multiple platform changes, although the massive amount of dialogue they had to write for it didn't help either. It started out on SNES, then went to N64, then to PS1. It...

    He was a spoiled rich boy looking at dodging horny Aryan Nation goons every time he took a shower for the rest of his life. That's a huge comedown from the life of luxury he enjoyed. He was going to be on the world stage with all of his crimes laid bare. He was fucked and he knew it. I'm going to go with the Occam's Razor theory on this one. There is some bizarre, fucked up shit going on...

    Shadow1980 said: If I had to guess regional market share under this alternate timeline, then assuming the most optimal circumstances for Nintendo I would assume the N64/PS1 split would have been 60/40 in the U.S. and 75/25 in Japan, with Europe being a toss-up. Globally, that could have put the N64 at around 70-75M and the PS1 at around 45-50M. Despite coming in second place, Sony would...

That wouldn't be a reality I would like to live on.But Nintendo relationship with several companies were already on shake basis so perhaps not all would change.

    Quodam_Diem said: I don't understand why so many votes for N64 victory. There would be definitely a great battle in America, where Nintendo could win in the end, if we take under consideration the base from SNES and NES years. But, in Europe...no way. The very best 64 could have done, would have been around 10 to 15 million, and again this is very optimistic. In Japan with FF and DQ,...

The cartridge move was a bad one for Nintendo. It stifled development and increased costs. I remember paying $70 for N64 games and $40 for ps1 games. Final Fantasy VII would likely have been...

    Chris Hu said: VAMatt said: I think the market was ready for something new. Sony was a very powerful brand in electronics. Possibly *the most* powerful brand at that time.

That cachet would have been hard to beat, regardless of what Nintendo...

    Least liked console from each of the big 3 and why

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 August 2019

    I'd have to put the Master System as my least favorite Sega console. A lot of its games looked prettier than the NES, but they weren't anywhere near as memorable. Even Phantasy Star, the best Master System game I've played, I didn't enjoy as much as Dragon (Quest) Warrior III and IV on NES. ...

Sony as a parent company already had the global market penetration to take Playstation to levels Nintendo wouldn't have been able to at the time. Playstation also treated 3rd party developers much better than Nintendo and would've probably still secured a majority of 3rd party games. The only exception being...

    Hynad said: Final Fantasy VII almost single-handedly tilted the balance in favour of the PS1.If the N64 had gone the CD route, Squaresoft would have stayed with Nintendo, and the battle between both consoles wouldn’t have been as one sided. This right here. The PlayStation was floundering in Japan until Square announced FFVII as a PS1 exclusive. No FFVII, no Japan, and it...

    Alternate history: N64 goes with CDs instead of cartridges

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 August 2019

    With a CD-ROM format, Nintendo would likely have kept Square and Enix exclusive. That would have killed the PS1 in Japan. The Saturn outsold the PS1 during the two systems' first year in Japan. Final Fantasy VII was what turned the tables for Sony there, and at the time, it was a foregone conclusion that it was going to be a N64 exclusive. Had Square stayed, Enix and Dragon Quest VII would have...

Nintendo's first party lineup was killer during this era; The console itself oozes charm, the controller is perfect (for games made on the system), and the games hold up quite well graphically to this day. I can definitely respect this. If not for the Switch, my favorite Nintendo console would have been a toss-up between the...

    Nintendo: The Switch. Not only does it combine the strengths of Nintendo's handheld and console divisions, the whole system just shines. Has a great library, especially of RPGs. I haven't had this much fun in gaming in years. Spent more time playing BotW than any other Zelda game. We just got another fantastic Switch game in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It's been a great retro system with a lot of...
